Rear leaf springs

Well both my rear leaf springs are broken so i need both sides. does any one know of a good place to order them from? i dont do alot of towing but i do some times. from what i have found there are 3 that will fit my truck. one rated for 3000 pounds one for 3300 and one for 4300. which one do i need? and what is the best place to get them. i just need a cheap set, nothing expensive. and every one i find the shipping is as much as the springs them selves. any recomendations?

And the truck is a 2003 F250 4X4 crew cab short bed, with the 6.0l

If I were looking for new springs, I would look to get the spring rate that is on the vehicle stock, of one level up. Check with a local body shop to see if they can get you a set cheaper, or a junk yard.

What did you do to break both sides? Probally the cheapest way to go would be to buy new leafs from a local spring shop. I have a shop near me that only charges about 50 bucks a ply and they will cut them to the exact size you need. Now if your pack is shot then that would not be an option.

Deaver springs if you have bout $600..junkyard for stock springs. Or try looking in the for sale section. Im sure there are plenty of guys on here that have them in the garage after they put and 8" spring for example, when they lifted their truck.

I do alot of buisness with denver spring and they wanted $230 per side so 460 total, i have found many places on line for $130 a side but then the shipping is another 150 so i was just wondering if any one new of a place to order them on line with free shipping.

And they were broke when i bought the truck not sure how they broke but its the middle two springs on the pack of 4. it was probably over loaded or something to cause them to break. i didnt notice it when i was looking at the truck so.
